Unable To Login Via Default Login Credentials of Admin in Ambari

Explorer

I installed hortonworks sandbox around two weeks ago on a cloud server of linode with a machine of 8GB RAM. I access this node of Linode via Putty. On that node, I'm using hadoop inside a docker that I installed on that system.

Everything is working fine. Also, I am able to login Ambari via the default login credentials like maria_dev, raj_ops, holger_gov and amy_ds.

But I am unable to login via the default login credentials of admin. In the command line, I tried the following commands :

ambari-server restart  
ambari-admin-password-reset

But even after changing the password, it didn't workout for me.

Can someone please help me to login via the login credentials of admin ?

@Amogh Suman,

Try changing it from the backend and login

# psql -U ambari -d ambari
Password for user ambari: bigdata
ambari=> update ambari.users set user_password='538916f8943ec225d97a9a86a2c6ec0818c1cd400e09e03b660fdaaec4af29ddbb6f2b1033b81b00' where user_name='admin';
ambari=> \q

# ambari-server restart

password is 'admin'

Thanks,

Aditya

This solution isn't working. Password wasn't reset to admin. 😞

@Amogh Suman,

There was a comment for this question which you might have deleted. I saw that you mentioned (/etc/ambari-server/conf/log4j.properties) file was missing. Can you please create the file and put the content of log4j.txt attached and try restarting ambari server.

chmod 755 /etc/ambari-server/conf/log4j.properties
ambari-server restart

log4j.txt

Thanks,

Aditya

Yes Aditya. But since I was getting that same error at various other times when using various other commands, I decided to put it up as a separate question. I was able to rectify it. 🙂 🙂

Looks like there is already another thread for the same issue/cause. Can you please mark this thread as Closed/Answered/Accepted

https://community.hortonworks.com/questions/157756/ioerror-errno-2-no-such-file-or-directory-etcamba...

It may also be a permission related issue. So please check if the user who is starting the ambari server process has access to read that log4j.properties file or not?

# ls -l /etc/ambari-server/conf/log4j.properties
-rwxr-xr-x. 1 root root 5443 Oct  9 15:37 /etc/ambari-server/conf/log4j.properties
